The World’s Best Hawaiian Food Can Be Found At This Humble Little Restaurant In Milwaukee
When it comes to Hawaiian food, your first thought might not be to look in the Midwest. However, this little restaurant in Wauwatosa has Hawaiian food that is absolutely to die for – and so much more! From home cooked meals to friendly faces and cool decor, this place can’t be beaten. Check out this hidden Milwaukee gem and find out why this humble shop is better than all the rest.
Welcome to Ono Kine Grindz, home to the best Hawaiian food in Milwaukee - and quite possibly the nation (outside of Hawaii, of course).
Say "Aloha!" to the humble little restaurant that serves up the best Hawaiian style foods and goods. Ono Kine Grindz is one of the few restaurants in the greater Milwaukee area serving up authentic Hawaiian cuisine.
If you don't fall in love with their food first, you'll fall in love with the owners.
David and Guy opened the storefront in 2010, and are what truly makes Ono Kine a Milwaukee favorite. This duo will always make you feel at home because when you're in their presence, you're truly family. Not only will you leave will a full stomach, but two new friends, and if you have any questions about Hawaiian culture, they are more than happy to share. This "pop and pop" shop wouldn't be complete without "the uncles!"
This little storefront might not look like much from the outside, but their food is bursting with big flavors.
Their menu is the epitome of home cooking, with daily specials including traditional favorites like Kalua pig, Kalbi ribs, fresh salmon, and stir-fry. For our plant-based friends, there are also vegetarian options like tofu and their amazing seaweed salad. While there isn't a lot of seating available in this small restaurant, carry out is always an option!
Everything is affordable, too!
Ono Kine’s prices are incredibly down to earth. Whether you're having a bento box with their famous macaroni salad, or a plate of teriyaki beef and pineapple carrot-slaw, you can dine at this amazing restaurant without breaking the bank. Don't forget to add a "crack tea" to your order - it's the most addicting combination of black tea and pineapple juice you'll ever taste.
Not only is this incredible restaurant an amazing place to dine, it's also a specialty store.
There are next to no places in Milwaukee to find authentic Hawaiian goods, but Ono Kine has you covered, offering everything from specialty treats to books and clothing items.
Make sure to add a homemade dessert to your order!

From their home on the shore of the Pacific Ocean to ours on Lake Michigan, this is one humble little restaurant you won't soon forget.
